ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court on Thursday reinstated Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf candidate Qaisar Jamal Khan as Member of the National Assembly (MNA) from NA-47, days after an election tribunal had declared his election void.
A two-judge bench, headed by Justice Sarmad Jalal Usmani, heard the case today.
The court issued notices to the respondents and adjourned the hearing of the case until two weeks.
Earlier on May 5, an election tribunal had de-seated PTI MNA Qaisar Jamal and directed the Election Commission of Pakistan to hold re-election in his constituency, NA-47 in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Fata).
The tribunal for Dera Ismail Khan, headed by Yahya Zahid Gillani, had declared the election of Qaisar void under the Representation of People’s Act in a short order after hearing the petition of PTI MNA’s rival candidate Haji Abid Afridi at a camp court in the provincial capital.
The petitioner had challenged Qaisar Jamal’s election as MNA over ‘the printing of wrong election symbol for a candidate in the ballot paper and corrupt practices.’
